Hey, y'all! My nickname is Ink, and I'll be 23 in a little over a month! I got back into collecting my sophomore year of college (my best friend, vulpes_canis, got back into collecting a bit before me, and showed me the comm!) and I'm now a first-year grad school student! I got my BA in maritime studies (think archaeology/history of maritime communites) and I'm now working on my MA in history! A&M Galveston is my alma-mater, and now I'm at SFA. I have been into Pokemon since it came to the United States back when I was in around first grade, and while my interest waned a bit after elementary, by the end of high school I was back into it. In addition to Pokemon, I like baking, various crafty things, reading/writing, and various cute and creepy things. I wear lolita and even my "normal" clothes are primarily pastels. As far as music goes, I usually listen to pop, folk, and alternative music, but I kinda dabble. I like Dan Fogelberg, Mary Epworth, Steam Powered Giraffe, Taylor Swift, Lu Han, Z.TAO, EXO, VIXX, B.A.P, SHINee, Red Velvet, Girl's Day, and JJCC. As far as tv shows, I like Bob's Burgers, Sleepy Hollow, Elementary, "It's Okay, That's Love," and "I Remember You" (both of those last two are Korean dramas) I kinda like Supernatural, I liked it a lot in it's early seasons but it's so complicated now that it's hard for me ^^;
Okay, I think that's more than enough... now onto my collection!
This is how my collection looked when I first joined!

These are my 151 badges...
And these are custom buttons I've gotten at conventions!
These are all custom prints and sketches:
(I drew this one for the Pokemon Shaming meme on Tumblr. If you can't read it it says "I forget that I evolved and I keep trying to headbutt mommy!")
These are the art prints I have in my apartment:
Some of these are cards/sketches by vulpes_canis who is very sweet and draws my birthday cards
Pouches, games, and an Eevee Lollipop charm on my 3DS!
I have some jelly jars from the 90's! I use them as juice glasses now. (I've had these since the 90's but they've never made it into any collection pictures)
Well, now that I've hurt your eyes from all the pictures... thank you so much for reading! As you can see my collection has grown a lot! I've had so much fun on here the past three years, and learned so much. Vulpes_canis and I were actually able to run a panel at a con this past year on Pokemon bootlegs! I never dreamed three years ago I'd know enough about collecting to do that.
